TreesOfLives® is a sustainable impact investment fund and digital platform that allows individuals and organizations to invest in projects dedicated to the reforestation and restoration of degraded lands. The platform provides investors with an unparalleled level of transparency, thus allowing them to track any given project’s progress.
